Bus travel Luang Prabang to Xishuangbanna. Anyone?

Jump to last reply

Thought of taking the bus from Laos to China, a 24 hr journey, but would like any comments on safety, comfort (sleeper beds?), bumpiness of road, etc. Not worried about cost. Will be departing from Chiang Mai, T'land, probably fly to LB thence onwards towards China.

Frankly, would prefer to travel across Myanmar to China, crossing at Takiliek, Myanmar and bus to Keng Tung and beyond but have heard stories of closed roads, military escorts, field guides only, etc. So that route is (probably) out.

Am keen to visit Yunnan, esp the nature preserve at Xishuangbanna. Sure could fly CM to Kunming, but how boring.
